  • Among the looks on display at tomorrow’s Pratt Institute Fashion Show will be three that have emerged victorious in a semester-long sportswear design competition sponsored by The Cotton Board. The Pratt students behind the designs are Juan Pozo (his prepster ensemble took the $5,000 first-place prize), Matthew Bruch (with a blue ombre tweed swing coat designed for a modern-day Jackie Kennedy), and Theresa Deckner (who fearlessly combined colors and prints).

  • The One Club has announced the finalists for the 2011 One Show, One Show Design, and One Show Interactive awards. To learn who wins the coveted gold, silver, and bronze pencils, you’ll have to wait for the One Show Festival, which begins May 9.

  • With the May 3 deadline to enter the the first annual Core77 Design Awards approaching, the organizers have announced the 15 jury teams that will deliberate in locales from Copenhagen to Palo Alto before announcing their decisions in live web broadcasts. We can’t help but be partial to the hometown teams: Steven Heller is the fearless leader of the graphics, branding, and indentity squad, while Julie Lasky is heading up the products and equipment jury.
